AUGUSTA — A city woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of assault, but will be able to withdraw that plea next June if she successfully completes a one year deferred-disposition program.

Mallory L. Cote, 23, also pleaded guilty in Kennebec County Superior Court to a misdemeanor charge of failing to provide correct name, address and date of birth.

Both charges stemmed from an incident Sept. 3, in Farmingdale, in which police say Cote began arguing with and then pushing her uncle, Randall Wright.

William E. Blodgett, 21, of Farmingdale, then joined in, police say, with Cote’s encouragement.

A jury in Kennebec County Superior Court on May 24 convicted Blodgett of aggravated assault in connection with that incident. Blodgett has yet to be sentenced.

Under the terms of Cote’s deferred disposition, she is banned from contact with Wright and must pay a $25 monthly supervision fee to the Kennebec County District Attorney’s Office.

If she is successful, she will then be allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge carrying a sentence of 364 days in jail, with all but 90 days suspended, one year of administrative release, and $300 in fines and restitution.

She was sentenced to a concurrent 90 days in jail for giving incorrect information to police at the scene.

Several other people were sentenced Monday and Tuesday in separate hearings in Kennebec County Superior Court:

* Christopher W. Cook, 47, of Burnham, operating under the influence Jan. 20, in Winslow; $500 fine, 90 day license suspension.

* Joshua S. Hood, 31, of Sidney, theft by receiving stolen property Feb. 12, in Mount Vernon; six month jail sentence.

* Eric Prosper, 23, of Fairfield Center, unlawful possession of hydrocodone and unlawful possession of oxycodone Dec. 6, in Waterville; 364 day jail sentence, all but 120 days suspended, one year administrative release, $800 fine.

* Brittany Smith, 24, of Stow, possession of hypodermic apparatus April 27, in Winslow; $400 fine.
